Topsham St James Cricket Club held two very successful end-of-season presentation evenings, writes Sheila Harding.

The first of these was on Friday, September 8, when over 50 adult players, partners and invited guests met in the Malthouse of the Globe, Topsham, where, following an excellent buffet meal, Charlie Penn (chairman) thanked all the captains, committee members and others for their hard work during the year. Thereafter, the following awards were presented:

1st XI: Player of the Season (Brewer Cup), Mark Phillips; Top Batsman (Harold Lewis Cup), Mark Phillips; Innings of the Season, Dan Armstrong; Top Bowler (Evans Cup), Brian Jeary; Best Bowling Performance of the Season, Edd Kirby.

Ladies: Best with Bat, Amelia Sydenham; Best with Ball, Sally Hammond; Players’ Player, Sally Hammond; President’s Cup, Charlie Penn; Clubman Cup, Edd Kirby.

Then, on Sunday, in spite of the day being showery and blustery, there was a good turn-out for the Colts Presentation Evening, which was held in the clubhouse at Bonfire Field, Topsham.

The evening started with a softball cricket match between members of the U13 squad and their parents. At the same time the barbecue was lit and the bar opened.
